This is part of the dome of the Providence, RI State house. I remember reading somewhere that the dome is the second largest of its kind in the world behind one in the Vatican somewhere. Hmmm... little states with big state houses, maybe RI is trying to compensate for something.

Circular polarizer to deepen the sky. Levels and slight skew in PS to correct for barrel distortion. Color balance, sharpness and neat image.

Really surprised at the placing of this photograph. I thought you deserved way better.

Beautiful exposure - looks like it may be a polarized sky - which is very effective, no hint of glare from the granite. Excellent.

Beautifully clean image with nice composition.
The shadow areas give a feeling of depth to the picture which adds to it`s overall effectiveness.

Well done photo, and it does meet the challenge. It lacks WOW, however. Did you have the opportunity to catch the top of the larger dome and omit the smaller - or vice-versa?

Good clarity and composition. Bet you used a polarizer. Well done.

My top pick in this challenge and a new favorite. Those contrasting colors get me every time. Wonderful clarity!

The upper dome would've been enough. Great picture. 9.

This is very similar to something I did a while ago, but I didn't think about using it for this challenge. I like it. Very sharp.

One of my favourites, I would guess top 10 if not a ribbon.

Is that natural color of building? I like sharpness of details on it...

Beautiful detail and colour. You did very well to pick this out from the whole scene. The sky really brings out the tones of the stone. The shadows are nice and deep and the highlights are not over exposed. Very well done.
